WHAT CABLE TO USE IN sq mm
A charger or inverter up to cable run distance
Current 0-1.5 mtr 1.5 - 4 mtr
0-25 amps 6 mm sq 10 mm sq
25-45 amps 16 mm sq 25 mm sq
45-85 amps 25 mm sq 35 mm sq
85-125 amps 35 mm sq 50 mm sq
125- 180 amps 50 mm sq 70 mm sq
180-330 amps 70 mm sq 90 mm sq

There doesn't seem to be a way to format that table, sorry.

Starters can draw 200-300 amps for a short period.
